What a joke this hunter guy is.. And I will never listen to another player evaluation from our coaches again until I get to see them play and make my own judgement. Sparano and Rex said hunter looked awesome in camp and that he was ready to be a beast this year.. A beast of what, letting our qb get killed?!
I've always thought Ducasse's best position was OG. The position fits his great size & strength while covering up his lack of footwork. Unlike 100% of the board I'm still hopeful that Ducasse can eventually become a decent NFL interior lineman. He might be ready next year if one or both of Moore and Saluson leave.
At this point we have to do something, even trying a retread.
I'd say put a TE permanently on Hunter's right. That turns Hunter into a G.
Or position John Conner right behind Hunter on most plays to help with the blocking.
Essentially the Jets have to sacrifice a player to make up for Hunter's inadequacy.
Actually I'd rather play a young guy like Austin Howard there to get him some experience and do the same thing. There's a good chance an a young player will get better with experience. Hunter has been in the league for 9 years so this is as good as he's going to be.
